I got one of these off Ebay. Cost me £7.00 delivered and works just as well as the original aerial did. Well worth it in my opinion :turtle:

I used to have one, electical to, to boost the signal, mounted it on the top dash rail nice and discreet, may purchase another and have it mounted to under my fibre dash as i miss not having to choose songs sometimes!

Edit: Its exactly the same as the one in the kit as shown in the ebay link, cheap as chips and worked great!

Ive fitted a few of these, when i worked at halfords and the signal was 9/10 better than normal antenna; Especialy when compaired to VW'S

So yeh go for it halfords charged £15 for them. So not cheap, but work very well and Kev has one in Gloria behind the mirror

Well after all the great reviews off you guys, I've just bought one of these. I hope it's pretty good, mine was never much good and was even worse after someone snapped it in halfords car park.

Would this work if you fitted it into the headlining? (as in, with the headlining over the top?)

Probably, but if you ever want to get to it/replace it, do you want to take your windscreen out?

I suppose you'd just have to leave it there if it packed up...
